Canada posted their best-ever margin of victory at the Concacaf Gold Cup, with a 4-0 win over Martinique on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. to open the 2019 edition of the competition.

After Martinique gave Canada a couple scares early with scoring chances against the run of play, Canada took the lead in the 33rd minute, as Jonathan David stripped Daniel Herelle after a shaky pass out of the back and waited for his chance to bury the shot, which he did.

He doubled the lead and his goal tally on the night in the 53rd minute on a jailbreak, as Samuel Piette dropped a ball over the top, with David confidently finishing his chance. 10 minutes later, Canada got their third goal, as Junior Hoilett bundled in the ball after Martinique goalkeeper Loic Chauvet saved the initial attempt.
